About Me

Hello/Salam! I am Dani from New Orleans, USA. I moved to Dubai in 2019 after teaching English for a year in both China and Ukraine. I study Arabic and Middle Eastern Studies at the American University in Dubai and I also teach English online to little kids. I try to travel at every holiday and break I get and I absolutely love the couch surfing experience and have made some amazing memories with my past hosts. There is nothing like meeting locals and getting to learn about a country’s culture in a non touristy way. I can’t wait to meet more incredible travelers through this network and continue to travel to the fullest(:
